Brockenhurst to Burley and back - July 2013

Another day, another bike ride.  We certainly made the most of our new electric assisted bikes during this trip and plan to do so again, should we be lucky with the weather again!! 

On Tuesday morning we had breakfast and headed back out into the forest for a ride over to Burley (a visit to New Forest Cider is a must!) sticking mainly to the forest trails and very quiet roads.  Again we hardly saw anyone during our 22 mile ride.  However, just to make my entire holiday, we were very lucky to spot a baby deer in the forest near to the Rhinefield Ornamental Drive and I was lucky enough to photograph it.  Further along the route we came across more deer munching on the lush green hedges.  We were so chuffed.  After a brief stop in Burley and a visit to the cider shop we headed back to the campsite via the Rhinefield Ornamental Drive where we stopped to enjoy a well earned New Forest ice cream.

We ate on site that evening and spent most of it sat outside as it was still far too hot inside for us and Paddy.  Sadly that was our last evening at Black Knowl and our time had gone far too quickly.
